What does Love want? 1
Love wants priorities made clear … Love Is The Only Priority that matters.
Look to Jesus for the example of this … His life, message, death and life after ressurection were All about Forgive like there was no yesterday and Love like there was no tomorrow.
He encouraged us and showed us that Nothing was more important, or of greater value than our Love for each other and our connection to each other.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” … Matthew 5:23-24
The passage above was Jesus speaking to people for whom their offerings were literally the thing that thier life depended on. Christ here is making a very clear and passionate plea to focus on our relationships instead of our righteousness.
In part He did this because “He Is our Righteousness” … Grace says All we need has been done, “Finished” … Accomplished by Him.
Another reason He said this is that God, The God Who Is Love beyond human comprehension, made us to Need Love in order to live a life and not just have an existence.
